PUTOPIS

Volimo da pakujemo i vučemo kofere. Tada se osećamo živo i znamo da gde god da krenemo videćemo i naučiti nešto novo. Ni ovaj put se nismo prevarili.

Zabavno je istraživati Srbiju. To jutro smo popili kafu na Srebrnom jezeru. Krenuli smo za Beograd. Gužva na auto-putu bila je jasan znak da je vikend blizu. Mi smo u stvari krenuli iz Srebrnog jezera, ka srcu Šumadije, kroz prestonicu. Kako smo taj vikend trebali da provedemo na jezerima Bele Crkve, plan je bio da nema plana. Spakovali smo se u letnjem fazonu – kupaći, kreme za sunčanje, mini neseser, farmerice, šortsevi i par majica. Što manje to bolje.

Prvi autobus smo uhvatili relativno lako. Kada smo pozvali autobusku i pitali kada ide bus za BG rečeno nam je – 9:15. Međutim kako to inače biva, krenuli smo u 9:05, sva sreća pa smo odavno naučili da je autobuskim linijama u Srbiji vreme relativna stvar 🙂

Šarmantni Beograd pun dešavanja baš tada je imao otvaranje Coca-Cola Pop Up prodavnice, tako da gužva tog pre podneva nije mogla da bude veća. Ipak posle malo hrane i sladoleda (hej pa ne ide se na put samo da bi stigao tamo negde, moraš malo i da uživaš u putovanju 😉 stigli smo na mesto odakle smo mini busem trebali da krenemo za Čačak.

Čekajući mali autobus upoznali smo se sa ekipom. Pozitivna energija je dobar pokretač dobrih stvari. Uverili smo se da ima studenata koji rado volontiraju, kao i ljudi koji nisu otišli iz zemlje, jer je tamo negde lakše i lepše već žele da to lakše (lepše sigurno imamo) dovedu kod nas. Naravno, svuda postoji i ona druga strana medalje i ljudi koji se trude da ti pokažu da su oni iznad nečega ? (i znamo da će oni prvi doći na sajt da vide da li smo napisali nešto loše o njima, ipak moraćemo da ih razočaramo jer ćemo se kao i uvek fokusirati samo na lepe i pozitivne stvari a srećni smo što ih je bilo mnogo!).

Kretali smo se Ibarskom magistralom – strah i trepet za prosečnog Srbina iz Vojvodine i istočne Srbije. To je vijugav put na kome se ugostitelji bore ko će dati interesantnije ime kafani. Možete da naletite na svašta – male kafanice pored puta, Srpski Holywood ( da na brdu je natpis ), kafane u kojima su sve stolice različite, kao i suncobrani… Svako je od ničega napravio nešto i uglavnom svaka ima goste, nadamo se da nisu svratili na ljutu nego na dobre pljeske 🙂

Lagano stižemo u Čačak. Još uvek je dan pa smo odlučili da počnemo da ga istražujemo. Šetnjom kroz centar zapazili smo da je grad veoma živ. Ljudi su čekali u redu za sladoled a zatim laganom šetnjom do fontane šacovali su prvu slobodnu klupu. Nailazimo na spomenik Vojvodi Stepi Stepanoviću. Šetamo ulicama oko centra i nailazimo na popularnu piceriju u kojoj prave Pizza Giros. Malo dalje niz ulicu otkrivamo najstariju srpsku kafanu Car Lazar koja je osnovana davne 1883. godine.

Došlo je vreme za večeru. Raspitivali smo se kod sugrađana koji su bili i više nego srećni ne samo da nam kažu gde se u gradu najbolje jede, već i da nas odvedu. Našli smo se u restoranu Romansa. Umorni od puta i šetnje okrepili smo se dobrim vinom, pljeskavicama i salatom. Kad je dobra hrana u pitanju važi pravilo – ako se sprema pola sata, pojede se za manje od 5 minuta. Zadovoljni, ne samo obrokom, već i cenama povlačimo se na odmor. Čuli smo da nas sutra čeka zanimljiv dan.

Jutro je. Sat zvoni. Slažemo se da se odavno nismo tako lepo odmorili. Pijemo kafu i gledamo kroz prozor ka centru grada. Gužva se lagano skuplja dok se tezge karavana Moja Srbija pune prospektima, vodom, hranom… Svako želi da predstavi ono najbolje.

Mi smo okvirno upoznati sa onim što nas čeka. Barem smo tako mislili. Po nas dolazi vodič iz Turističke Ogranizacije Čačak, sedamo u auto i krećemo ka Ovčar banji. Dok prolazimo ulicama Čačka upoznaje nas sa zdanjima koja krase ovaj grad. Uživamo u pogledu na zelenilo i planine. Upoznaje nas sa legendom o Svetom Savi i objašnjava nam koliko planinari vole taj kraj.

Prolazimo kroz banju. Deluje pusto i mirno. Vodič kaže da tu živi oko 150 ljudi. Sele se, kaže u veće gradove. Deluje nestvarno da bi neko napustio takav mir i prodao ga za urban život. U banji je jedna škola, jedan učenik, jedna spremačica i jedna učiteljica. Surova realnost i prelepo mesto na kom stvarno može da se uživa u spokoju se prepliću.

Stižemo do Ovčarsko-Kablarske klisure. Divimo se netaknutoj prirodi dok čekamo katamaran. Katamaran je nešto kao brodić splav koji vozi turiste rekom. Vožnja traje oko 2 sata a cena je 400 dinara. To je nešto što stvarno morate da osetite i doživite! Vetar u kosi. Mnogo ptica (kažu da je to stanište oko 130 vrsta ptica) i toliko divne prirode na jednom mestu ne mogu rečima da se opištu. A sve to gledate sa vode!

We like to pack and drag bags. Then we feel alive and know that wherever we go we will see and learn something new. This time we did not make a mistake.
It’s fun to explore Serbia. That morning we had coffee on Silver Lake. We set off to Belgrade. Crowds on the highway was a clear sign that the weekend is close. We have in fact goal to start our journey from Silver Lake, to reach the heart of Sumadija, through the capital. As we had planned to spend weekend on the lakes of Bela Crkva, the plan was that there is no real plan. We packed in the summer mood – swimsuit, sunscreen, mini kit, jeans, shorts and a couple of shirts. The less the better.

We caught the first bus relatively easy. When we called the bus station to ask when we have bus to BG they told us – 9:15. But as it usually happens, we left at 9:05, we had the luck to learn a long time ago that the bus lines in Serbia think that time is a relative thing and that is not important to travellers at all 🙂 Charming Belgrade full of events just had the opening of Coca-Cola Pop Up Shop so crowd that before noon could not be higher. However, after a little food and ice cream (hey, you do not go on a journey just to come out there, but to enjoy the ride 😉 we arrived at a place where it is supposed to pick us up mini bus.

Waiting for little bus we met with the team. Positive energy is a good driver of good things. We have found that there are students who like to volunteer, as well as people who have not left the country, because somewhere out there is easier and nicer, but want to easy (it is certain that we have nice) bring to us. Of course, like everywhere there is the other side of the coin, and there are people who are trying to show you that they are above something? (and we know that they will come first to the site to see if we wrote something bad about them, but we will have to disappoint them because we will as always focus on the beautiful and positive things and we are happy that there were many!).

The bus was going on the Ibar highway – a fear for the average Serb from Vojvodina and Eastern Serbia. It is a winding road where restaurateurs take on who will give an interesting name to taverna. You can run on anything – small little cafe next to the road, Serbian Holywood (that sign is on the hill), a bar in which are all different chairs and umbrellas … Everyone made something out of nothing, and generally each have guests, we hope that not stopped for rakija but for good hamburgers 🙂

Finally, we arrive at Čačak. It is still light so we decided to start exploring it. Walking through the center we noticed that the city is very much alive. People were waiting in line for ice cream and then had an easy walk to the fountain while searching for the first empty bench. We find the a monument of Duke Stepa Stepanovic. We walk around the streets near down town and come to the popular pizza restaurant in which serve Pizza Gyros. A little further down the street we find the oldest Serbian tavern Czar Lazar, which was founded in 1883.
It was dinner time. We asked fellow citizens who were more than happy not only to tell us where you can eat the best in Cacak, but also to take us there. We were in the restaurant called Romansa.

Tired of road and walking we strengthened with the good wine, burgers and salads. When it comes to good food there is a rule – if it is preparing for a half an hour, it will be eaten in less than 5 minutes. Satisfied, not just because of the meal, but prices, too we went to the hotel to get some sleep. We have heard that we will have a interesting day tomorrow.
It’s morning. Clock rings. We had a nice sleep. We drink coffee and look out the window towards the city center. The crowd gathers slowly until caravan Moja Srbija (My Serbia) arrange on counter prospectuses, water, food … Everyone wants to present the best.

We are roughly familiar with daily plan . At least so we thought. Per us comes guide from the tourist Organization Cacak, we sat in the car and head to the Ovcar Banja. As we go through the streets of Cacak he introduces us the buildings that decorate this city. We enjoy the view of the countryside and mountains. Introduces us to the legend of St. Sava and explains how many hikers love this place.

We pass through the Ovcar spa. It seems deserted and quiet. The guide says there live about 150 people. They migrate to bigger towns. It seems unreal that someone left such a peace, and sold it for urban life. In the Spa is one school, one student, one teacher and one maid. The harsh reality and beautiful place where really able to enjoy the tranquility intertwine.

We’re coming to the Ovcar-Kablar gorge. We admire the untouched nature while waiting for the catamaran. The catamaran is something like a junk raft that drives tourists on the river. The trip takes about 2 hours and the price is 400 dinars. This is something that you really have to feel and experience! Wind in your hair. Many birds (they say that it is the habitat of 130 species of birds) and so beautiful nature in one place we can not find words to describe for. All this is viewed from the water!
